Tennessee ranked high for digital technology

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam announced Monday that the state has been recognized as one of the top in the nation for use of digital technology to better serve residents and streamline operations.

Tennessee was among six states to receive a grade of "A-" in the 2012 Digital States Survey, which was up from a "B+," the state's grade in the 2010 survey.

Two states, Michigan and Utah, were the only two states to receive an "A."

"Our goal is for Tennessee to be the best-managed state in the country, and technology plays a significant role in accomplishing that," Haslam said in a news release. "We are always looking to improve the way we deliver state services to Tennessee taxpayers, and will continue to enhance online options."

The Digital States Survey awards ceremony will be held on Oct. 21 in San Diego.
